Corruption looms over the prosperous Russell City, where manifestations of negative emotions called Horrors cause chaos and mayhem. The Makai Order is the last bastion of hope against these unholy creatures. Using several small businesses as fronts, they deploy powerful Makai Knights and magical Makai Alchemists to combat the Horror threat.

Within this secretive order, the highest rank of Golden Knight has been bestowed upon a large, powerful man named Sword, granting him use of the Garo armor and blade. He alone knows of a plot that threatens the entire Makai Order, with his only hint being the phrase “El Dorado." While fighting a Horror, he encounters Sophia "Sophie" Hennis, a teenage girl whose brother's disappearance years ago is also linked to the same phrase. The two agree to work together to uncover the truth behind "El Dorado" and the disappearance of Sophie's brother.

Garo is a rather overlooked and underrated show that quite surprised me. Good production values and plenty of fun action should be up the alley of a lot of people.

Sound / Music / Voice Acting - 8/10

Mixed Feelings
Garo: Vanishing Line is a fun anime with fantastic style that unfortunately just lasts too long.

The visuals are great, the concept entertaining and the soundtrack is so good, it's the best part of many scenes. However, the many episodic side stories mean it's all repeated too often, allowing it to go stale before the end.

Once the show starts to get boring, it's a lot easier to notice the poor writing and inconsistencies, as well as more difficult to forgive them.

There's a lot of fanservice in this but it's all western-friendly, only adult characters. The humour isn't great but it does keep the show from getting ...

Garo is a franchise I've talked about once with Honoo no Kokuin. It was a sub-par, tryhard dark series where every "twist" was painfully obvious. Maybe this one is less profoundly stupid and manages to be a sentai show for adults that actually respects its audience's intelligence. 


Sophia Hennes is an orphan who just wants to find her brother. He disappeared one day with the words "El Dorad" left on his computer screen. Sophia goes to a famous psychic hoping for a clue but, like all psychics, he's fake. He's also a monstrous horror who tries to kill her. Which is almost as bad. Fortunately for her, she's rescued ...
